About the property

2+2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Spa With Sauna

Bjorknas Lodge is an exclusive private waterfront property above which offers both adventures and relaxation. This 106-year-old home have been restored to its former glory, creating a pastoral family retreat with all modern amenities. Here, on the frontier of Europe´s last wilderness Laponia, you can enjoy unlimited outdoor life and stunning experiences all year-around. During summer you can experience the magic of the Midnight Sun and have a unique summer holiday experience. Everything from world-class fishing to bathing in lakes with crystal clear water. In winter you can experience the Artic winter and go snowmobiling in the wilderness.

Even if Bjorknas is located above the Arctic circle it is easy to go there. Fly to Lulea from Stockholm (several connections every day). Then rent a car and drive for 2,5 hours and you will find yourself in Europe´s last wilderness.

In summer you can buy a fishing card that entitles you to fish in hundreds of lakes, streams and rivers. Fishing gear and boat can be rented.

In winter you can go snowmobiling in the surroundings or go to Kvikkjokk and up the majestic Tarra Valley. Snowmobiles can be rented.

If you like to go skiing there are two great resorts nearby, 45 min drive to Kåbdalis and 1 hour drive to Dundret Gallivare.

If you are a skilled freerider you can go heli-skiing at massifs Tarrekasie (1828 masl) and Staika (1795 masl). Substantial drop heights of between 900 and 1350 meters are offered with up to 7 km of off-piste runs in untouched high alpine environment.

About Åsa Soelberg

Bjorknas has been in the family for over a hundred years. Bjorknas is today our families refuge from modern life stress.

Åsa Soelberg purchased this house in 1909

Why Åsa Soelberg chose Sweden

Take your family and friends to an adventure in Europe´s last wilderness. During the last five years we have restored the house to its original state but with all modern facilities you can think of. Bjorknas is located above the Arctic circle which offers midnight sun in the summer and an arctic winter. After a week at Bjorknas you will find yourself relaxed and filled with experiences.

What makes this house unique

This is a very special home with a welcoming atmosphere and adventures for family and friends. In winter you may start your day with outside activities such as cross country skiing, fish jigging or snowmobiling in an arctic climate. Continue with a sauna that leaves your body soothe and your mind serene. In the summer, go fishing at 2 am in the midnight sun. Hike in the beautiful woods and surroundings, or in the four national parks just a few hours from the house. End your day by the dinner table filled with laughter and culinary experiences. Yes, this old beautiful farmhouse is the one you wished you lived in.

Traumhaft!

  • 5 of 5

Auf unserer Reise durch Norwegen und Schweden zu acht (4 Kinder und 4 Erwachsene) durften wir eine Woche im wunderschönen 'Haus am See' verbringen und wären gerne noch viel länger geblieben.

Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt und stilvoll eingerichtet, bietet viel Platz und lässt keine Wünsche offen. Der grosse Garten mit Seeanstoss, die Ruhe, die weite Landschaft mit unvergesslichen Stimmungen zu jeder Tages- und Nachtzeit bleiben unvergesslich.

Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und unkompliziert - alles hat bestens geklappt!

Dear Åsa, dear Örjan

We had a wonderful time at Björknäs! We enjoyed your lovely house with its incredible environment.

Thanks a lot for your generous opportunity to live in your house,

hopefully we come back!

Best regards

Entspannung pur - A lovely house

  • 5 of 5

Hej Asa,

das Haus ist großarig. Vielen Dank!

Es ist sehr ruhig gelegen und völlig abseits von allem Stress. Einfach großartig für Leute die der Großstadthektik entgehen möchten und die pure Natur lieben.

Es gibt viel zu sehen und zu erleben. Wanderlustige werden viel Spaß haben.

Das Haus liegt unmittelbar am Wasser und dennoch allein gelegen. Der Außenessplatz ist auf dem Bootssteg. Dort kann man jeden Tag die schönsten Sonnenuntergänge sehen.

Die Vermietung wird von einer Familie (den Besitzern) organisiert. Wir wurden herzlich empfangen und es warteten auch schon einige Informationsmaterilien auf uns. Diese waren sogar auf Deutsch. Die Familie hat sich wirklich Gedanken gemacht, um uns einen tollen Aufenthalt zu garantieren. Es sollte auch jeder nach den kleinen Geheimtips fragen, die sind Gold wert.

Ungefär 37 km entfernt kann man in Jokkmokk Einkäufe erledigen und auch wirklich gutes Essen genießen. Das Restaurant Smedjan können wir nur empfehlen.

Die Einrichtung des Hauses ist sehr gemütlich und man fühlt sich sofort heimisch.

Vielen Dank noch einmal für dieses tolle Haus! Wir hatten eine super Zeit.

Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland!

Lydia + Waldemar

-----------------------------------------------

This house was amazing. Thank you very much!

It is lain very quietly and completely off of all stress.

It´s the best place for people who want to escape the big-city hectic rush and love the pure nature.

There is a lot to see and to do. Travelling-amusing will have a lot of fun.

The house lies near the water and still only conveniently. The outside eating place is on the landing stage where you can see every day the nicest sundowns.

The renting is organised by a family (owners). We were warmly received and some material about the country already waited for us. These were even in German. The family did everything to guarantee for us a great stay. Also everybody should ask them for the small confidential tips, they are worth gold.

About 37 km away you can do some shopping in Jokkmokk and also enjoy really good food. We can only recommend the restaurant Smedjan.

The equipment of the house is very comfortable and one feels at home immediately.

Many thanks once again for this great house! We had a really great time.

Regards from germany,

Lydia + Waldemar
